There is no display screen to show an error code, as far as I can see.
How do I unplug motor?
How disconnect heater?
I should be able to manage it. Though I don't fancy taking the front off.
Can I access the motor by tipping the machine, or do I have to lay it on its side or something?
There's nothing I would describe as a multiplug that I can see.
There's a plate on the back of the drum, with 4 terminals.
The first has a white connection with a single grey/mauve wire going in to it.
The 2nd is black with 2 thin blue wires.
The 3rd is an earth.
The 4th is black with a single grey/mauve wire. ( The same colour wire as terminal 1)
These are all the electrical connections I can see or feel.
Hi, I've disconnected the two heater wires, and started it up. It's going. If the rcd trips, then this pc will go down. But it's going at the moment.
Like an idiot I was waiting for the w/m to cycle through to the end. Which of course it wouldn't because the water would never get up to temperature. So when I realised that, I stopped the wash cycle, and tried it on drain, and then spin. Everything seems to be working.
I have ordered new heater and thermostat, and will fit them as soon as they arrive.
I will let you know how thing turn out.
I changed the heater and thermostat, and have just completed a full washing cycle, so it looks like it's fixed.
